The stay at home order has really shaken our lives up. I guess we’ve decided that the 2 day process of making homemade bagels from scratch is in fact easier than the 2 day process of another grocery pickup order. We had leftover salmon and I was trying to stretch it into another dinner and this hit the spot. Roasting fresh salmon or using smoked salmon works great too. The colorful ingredients really make a beautiful platter and a simple dinner. My 6 year old not only helped make the bagels but shockingly loved the dinner too. The 4 year old, not so much.

  3. For perfectly cooked eggs: Place eggs in a pot covering them with cold water by about an inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Right when they reach a boil, turn off the heat and cover. Let them sit in the hot water for 15 minutes, set a timer. Run under cold water, crack and peel – a great activity for little kitchen helpers!
